The paper introduces an agent-based active portal framework. It aims to support the construction of active portals for various purposes such as for public Internet users, for specific group users, for teaching, or for financing. Agents in a portal are capable of autonomous actions to capture, select, organize, and analyze the sharable resources. These actions are those traditionally taken by a number of people called information engineers or knowledge engineers. By using the agents, the portal can rapidly provide the newly created and modified resources distributed in different places to the users and the costs of the action executions are considerably reduced. The framework is applied to active portal development to reduce the development time and costs. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2003.
